3 weeks to go

Time is ticking down to the biggest bodysurfing camp whomp off of all time!

In kid speak (I am as excited as a grom after his first barrel) – it’s only 22 more sleeps until the ultimate whomp down.

The forecast is in and its blowing up!

The actual forecast is still forthcoming but with lots of seasonal swell activity already kicking off and lots of local wave options its looking pretty sweet so far!

So if you haven’t looked it in, then perhaps now is the time to lock it in! <Click here for deets>

On another awesome note – we are also halfway to our charity goal of $3000! Thanks hugely to the prize sponsors and people like yourselves who have bought tickets! Its also never too late to increase your chances for winning some truly awesome gear! Check out the latest and greatest prize list <here>

See you at Whomp Camp!

Whomp Camp Anthem

Like the Olympics and other major sporting events – Whomp Camp needed an uplifting anthem that could also double up as a Eurovision song contest entry.

For this we can turn to the ‘Notorious’ and talented, Belly Slater. Let the good times roll!

Cutting it thin

Yes, it would be good to have given more notice to anyone wanting to come but you have to realize – that as professional bodysurfers we have no time to actually do anything. You know, in between the jetting from exotic location to exotic location in private jets on the world bodysurfing tour…..

So apologies in advance to those also impeded by the normal responsibilities of life…. On the positive side, it will still be awesome
